Despite President Donald Trump doing immense good for the black community, his enemies continually claim he is racist against black people. They downright ignore the historically low black unemployment rate, or the President’s recent pardons of black boxing legend Jack Johnson and non-violent drug offender Alice Marie Johnson.
So when a group of middle school students showed up at the National Museum of African American History and Culture with “Make America Great Again” hats on, it wasn’t surprising when liberals freaked out. An image of the young Trump supporters was posted on “The Jasmine BRAND” Facebook page.
While the students were simply on a class trip, and meant no disrespect with the hats, the comment section immediately jumped to conclusions. The universally accepted opinion in the comments is that they are racist, and wearing the hats as some sort of hateful statement.
Along with plenty of claims of racism, a number of people in the comment section either directly threatened harm on the boys in the picture, or hopes that somebody else would commit violence against them.
While this was just one example of kids wearing MAGA hats around Washington, D.C., a quick search on Twitter shows that it was not an isolated incident.
Wtf. It’s a group of White kids at the African American History Museum that all have on Trump and “Make America Great Again” hats on. My pic isn’t too clear but I’m just confused. pic.twitter.com/ef98ZxyUBJ

This is what I – and so many others – had to look at while at the National Museum of African American History and Culture …
about 20 teenage boys in "Make America Great Again" hats … truly disgusting as they laughed at images of slavery. #NMAAHC pic.twitter.com/3MqpnoD64q

A student in attendance claims that one of the young men wearing a MAGA hat was cornered, threatened, and spat on for wearing that hat. A teacher stepped in and prevented any actual harm against the student being threatened.
It isn’t very surprising that many of the people they are condemning are younger boys. Studies in recent years have shown that kids growing up in the age of the internet are becoming increasingly right-wing.
UPDATE: A student in attendance reached out to correct a few minor issues with the story. The students wearing the hats were middle school eighth graders on a class trip. While a number of the students chose to take their hats off in the museum, a number chose to keep it on. This resulted in angry reactions from members of the public in the museum, including a group of men who cornered one student, forced him to take his hat off, and spat on him.

See How This Trump Supporter Trolled De Niro At His Own Play
A little more than a week after his vulgar anti-Trump rant at the Tony Awards, actor Robert de Niro was repaid in kind at the curtain call of his version of “A Bronx Tale,” the Broadway show.
In the style coined by independent reporter Laura Loomer, a man stood up at the end of the show, rushing the stage with a “Keep America Great” flag. De Niro is the director of the show.
“The times we live in,” wrote Joe Del Vicario, who was at the show. “At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”

But politicizing shows is nothing new for the left. In November 2016, a cast member of Broadway Musical “Hamilton” lectured Vice President Mike Pence after the show. Pence was booed while exiting the theatre.
“We, sir, we are the diverse American who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.” said a cringeworthy Brandon Victor Dixon on stage.
After the show, Dixon continued injecting his politics into Broadway.
“We really thought this was an important moment to really say something,” he said. “To get in front of an individual with whom we feel we have differences and to make sure that he hears and he sees us.”
According to the new rules set by the left, yesterday’s “A Bronx Tale” protest is simply par for the course. The protestor, after all, was just getting in front of someone with whom he disagrees, right?
No surprise that the left does not want to play by the rules it has created.
Ted Cruz Beats Jimmy Kimmel in Charity Basketball Game
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) beat late night television host Jimmy Kimmel 11-9 in a charity one-on-one basketball game that came down to the wire.
“Can you be embarrassed by a picture of someone else’s dad? Because I am,” Kimmel said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after Cruz was spotted a Houston Rockets basketball game last month wearing a t-shirt over a polo shirt. “When Ted arrived at the Toyota Center, some of the fans mistakenly thought it was Grandpa Munster Bobblehead Night. I mean, look at him. He looks, and I’m not joking here, he looks like a blobfish.”
Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game.
All right, Big Guy…you talk a good game. You besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets,” Cruz said on Twitter. “So let’s settle this man-to-man: one-on-one, hoops (or ‘ring-ball,’ if you prefer). The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice.”
The two played at Texas Southern University.
“The crowd is fired up,” Cruz tweeted before the game began, attaching a video of the arena.

The game was initially supposed to be played to 15, but the pair shortened it to 11 because it was taking so long.

“You’re a good sport,” a bitter Kimmel said after a crushing defeat. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”
Ivy League Racism: Harvard Rates Asian Applicants Lower in ‘Likability,’ Other Traits
Court documents unsealed Friday show that Harvard College consistently ranks Asian applicants lower on several personality traits than it does students of different ethnicities in its admissions process.
“Harvard’s admissions officials assign Asian Americans the lowest score of any racial group on the personal rating—a subjective assessment of such traits as whether the student has a ‘positive personality’ and ‘others like to be around him or her,’ has ‘character traits’ such as ‘likability … helpfulness, courage, [and] kindness,’ is an ‘attractive person to be with,’ is ‘widely respected,’ is a ‘good person,’ and has good ‘human qualities,’ say the court documents.
The Ivy League giant has been sued by Students for Fair Admissions, an activist group that is fighting the negative externalities of Affirmative Action, which is supposed to protect minorities against discrimination.
“It turns out that the suspicions of Asian-American alumni, students and applicants were right all along,” Student’s for Fair Admissions attorneys said in the court documents. “Harvard today engages in the same kind of discrimination and stereotyping that it used to justify quotas on Jewish applicants in the 1920s and 1930s.”
It has long been known that Affirmative Action policies negatively affect certain racial sub-groups, particular East Asians. A 2005 Princeton University study shows that Asian American students, on average, must score 270 points higher than Latino students, and 450 points higher than black students on the 1600 point SAT in order to be admitted to the same universities.
If Harvard were to admit students strictly based on merit and without consciousness, it would have a much higher percentage of Asian students.
But Students for Fair Admissions argues in its lawsuit that Harvard is actively taking measures to ensure against that. The group argues that Harvard has implemented a “soft-quota” of “racial-balancing” aimed at Asian students, which amounts to institutional discrimination in violation of civil rights law.
“Thorough and comprehensive analysis of the data and evidence makes clear that Harvard College does not discriminate against applicants from any group, including Asian-Americans, whose rate of admission has grown 29 percent over the last decade,” Harvard said in a statement.
Harvard failed to address the fact that the Asian applicant pool has grown more than 40 percent during roughly the same time period while other racial applicant groups has stayed approximately the same.
The school has previously defended itself by claiming that standardized test scores are not the only factor taken into consideration when admitting a student. That defense is meaningless in light of the fact Asians are scoring demonstrably lower on subjective personality assessments conducted by Harvard admissions employees.
The irony is palpable. Ivy League schools are the hotbed for social justice babble against perceived racism. But the racism that is right under their nose – blatant discrimination against a certain group of applicants solely on the basis of the immutable characteristic of race – not only goes unnoticed, but it rather defended.
